  • What if Medicare will only pay for a Pap smear every three years?

    Medicare will only pay for a Pap smear every 24 months. However, we encourage you to continue with your annual appointments. A typical annual exam consists of much more than a Pap smear. When you come in for your annual exam, we will do a pelvic exam, breast exam, and screening for various types of cancer. If you’re over age 40, we will also perform a screening for colon cancer. Depending on age, we may also evaluate the need for mammography and bone density studies. Options for contraception, hormone therapy, and any other questions or concerns you may have are discussed.

  • Why is there a charge for completion of forms?

    If you bring simple forms with you to your appointment, there is no charge to complete these form as the physician and medical staff have reviewed your chart for your visit and can complete the form during the visit. However, for disability forms and long forms/letters, we do bill for the time to review the chart complete the forms and process these forms. Your insurance does not pay for these services and leave these costs to the patient. We charge $25.00 for two-three page forms and up to $75.00 for more complicated forms.
